All Michigan residents are welcome to schedule an appointment to get vaccinated at the Michigan State University Pavilion clinic operated by the Ingham County Health Department in partnership with the college. The site is a drive-thru only clinic, and appointments are available as early as this week.
The expansion in eligibility is made possible due to personnel support from the Department of Defense through a Federal Emergency Management Agency program. With additional personnel, ICHD anticipates shifting from vaccinating 1,600 people per day to 3,000-4,000 people per day.
“People move across county lines all the time,” said Ingham County Health Officer Linda S. Vail. “Ensuring that everyone in the state who wants a vaccine can get a vaccine benefits us all. We are seeing the number of new cases soar across the state, and there is a sense of urgency with getting people vaccinated.”
